Description

The Western Construction News reported on REA work in Wyoming.

“The REA has alloted $50,000 to the Washakie Rural Electric Company, Worland Wyoming, for construction of 50 miles of transmission lines in Washakie and Big Horn Counties, Wyoming.”

“High Plains Power, Inc. is a member owned electric cooperative serving just over 13,000 meters in central Wyoming. High Plains has over 4,800 miles of powerline covering 12,500 square miles in parts of Fremont, Hot Springs, Washakie, Natrona, Carbon, Big Horn, Johnson and Park counties.
High Plains Power was formed in 1998 when the memberships of the former Riverton Valley Electric Association and Hot Springs Rural Electric Association voted to consolidate.”
